Sacrament of the Sick
The sacrament of the sick is the wonderful sacrament of anointing with holy oil for the healing of mind and body. It is a sacrament for those who are unable to get to Mass because they are impaired by illness or old age. This sacrament brings great peace and much spiritual healing.
The sacrament is readily available in the hospital through the Catholic Chaplain on his regular visits. Those who are seriously ill at home should inform the parish office that they would like a visit and Anointing and Fr Mark will be only too happy to call round to administer the sacrament in the home.
Annually we have Mass with the Anointing of the Sick and many of our housebound people are brought in the enjoy Mass and receive the sacrament during the Mass. We usually offer some refreshments after Mass is over.
